Skin Care - What is Vitiligo and about it

Vitiligo WHAT IS IT? Vitiligo is a disease characterized by loss of skin color. The lesions are formed due to a decrease or absence of mulcts (the cells responsible for the formation of melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin) at the affected sites.http://www.skincaremoz.com/category/psoriasis/

The causes of the disease are not yet clearly established, but autoimmune mechanisms seem to be associated with vitiligo. In addition, changes or emotional trauma may be among the factors that trigger or aggravate the disease. Disease is characterized by skin hypo pigmentation, or white spots on the skin with a characteristic distribution. The size of the patches is variable. Vitiligo has several therapeutic options that vary according to the clinical status of each patient. The dermatologist is the most suitable professional to perform the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Important: Vitiligo is not contagious and does not harm the physical health. However, the lesions caused by the disease often impact significantly on quality of life and self-esteem the patient.http://www.skincaremoz.com/

In such cases, psychological counseling may be recommended. SYMPTOMS most vitiligo patients do not manifest any symptoms besides the appearance of white patches on the skin. However, in some cases, patients report feeling tenderness and pain in the affected area. A major concern of dermatologists is the emotional symptoms that patients may develop due to the disease.
